3 stars Coste Apetrea's career needs many pages to be written about, he is one of the most acomplished guitarists not only from Sweden but from Europe aswell he is a legend among prog and jazz musicians. He was part and stil is in some bands member with famous legacy in prog world like Sammla Mannas Manna, Jukka Tolonen and many more and aswell a solo career who begun in 1977 with album Nyspolat. His first solo album is a jazz fusion release with prog elements added and with a latin touch not far from what done in that period for instance Al DiMeola , but quite diffrent from what he will offer late on. Nyspolat is a pleasent album, little date it today in parts but very well played, is more towards the eclectic side of jazz fusion. The musicians are great each one brings a lot in this genre. Maybe this first album gone unnoticed then, the prog fans being more atached by Samla then to this, even now is not very known rlease, has it's moments but is nothing realy very impressive, at least to me. 3 stars, good but not excellent. Btw, brilliant cover art , made by one of the most famous painters and graphic artists in the world Tage Åsen, who will make history with Sammla , Zamla, etc and contribute aswell to other Coste albums.
